UNT's Annual Open Access Symposia



We welcome proposals from students and early-career professionals to present a poster during UNT's 12th annual Open Access Symposium, which will be held on May 22, 2020, in conjunction with the 2020 Society of Southwest Archivists Annual Meeting. [more]

At its meeting on April 10, 2019, the UNT Student Government Association Student Senate passed a resolution supporting the creation of open educational resources (OER).

The tenth annual UNT Open Access Symposium will be held May 17–18, 2019, at UNT Dallas College of Law. With a theme of “Is Open Access an Answer for Access to Justice?”, this year’s program will feature presentations and interactive sessions led by legal scholars and practitioners from Penn, Harvard, Duke, Saskatchewan, the Harris County Law Library, UNT, and more.

The University of North Texas Libraries and the UNT Dallas College of Law have seen an enthusiastic response to their call for proposals for the 10th annual UNT Open Access Symposium, to be held at the UNT Dallas College of Law.
